Movie Ratings are on a scale of 1-5. Anything rated over 3 stars and is in bold, is totally worth seeing! – I rate pretty harshly.
My Favorite Wife 1940 (w/ Cary Grant, Irene Dunne) – 4 stars – Growing up, I used to always watch the remake of this film with my favorite actress Doris Day, never knowing that My Favorite Wife is what it was based off of. This was incredibly addicting to watch. It is about a man who thought his wife was dead and gets remarried after 7 years. Of course his first wife is not really dead and just returned on the day of his wedding and lots of interesting comedy and situations come about because of it. This was hilarious and really sweet too. I loved it. gorgeous outfits and hairstyles! The remake is pretty much exactly like it if you want to see that afterwards which I also love called Move Over, Darling. content: women in lingerie, kissing, bigomy
Little House on the Prairie [2-disk movie series] 2005 (w/ Erin Cottrell, Cameron Bancroft, Kyle Chavarria, Danielle Chuchran) – 2.5 stars – I read the book series and saw all the t.v. series and decided to see the movie version of Little House on the Prairie. They kept a lot of things in line with the book which was nice. However they missed the overall joyful and fun aspect of the book and made it boring. Pa played his fiddle constantly in the book yet here I don’t even think he played it at all. Jack was a different breed dog that they lived up a bit, Carrie (youngest in the family in this book) was not even in it, and Laura’s hair was always talked about being brown and they even used the brown vs. blonde statements from the book in this movie but it didn’t work since Laura’s hair was also blonde. Weird. little things like that I do think matter. haha. They made it seem like Pa was not as jovial as he always was, but more troubled. It just didn’t have the same feel as the books did at all, even if the storyline was close enough. content: women shown at one point dressed immodestly as they’re prostitutes
Easter Parade 1948 (w/ Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, Ann Miller) – 3 stars – When a dance sensation looses his dance partner, he allows a nobody to audition for him. She can sing but doesn’t dance all that great. All of it is just to try to get his dance partner back. . but will it work? It was a good movie with great dancing and singing. content: some immodest dance outfits
Midnight Madness 1980 (w/ David Naughton, Debra Clinger, Michael J. Fox, Eddie Deezen) – 2.25 stars – A bunch of college kids have a game against each other that is a big scavenger hunt of getting clues. Each group has their own issues and have to get through them as they also compete against other teams. This movie had fun moments and was cute at times. It was also corny as could be. I don’t know how this was a Disney film though. content: cruel jokes on other people in competition, women immodestly dressed on roller skates in first scene for a few minutes, guy measuring breasts on a mannequin, woman flaunting her cleavage as everyone stares at them for an entire scene, light language
I usually list bands and albums and songs I like from the album, but I thought instead I would feature one band at a time since these entries are long enough! I rarely get comments on anything other than the movie reviews anyway, so this should be more simplified and easier for you all. Let me know your thoughts.
Featured Band & album
Eisley – The Valley album This album just came out a few days ago. I’ve been an Eisley fan since about 2005 and really enjoy all their songs (my photography named “Marvelous Things” is actually from one of their songs). This album is so much different than the rest of them because some major issues have happened in some of the members’ lives over the past year or two (like a divorce and a broken engagement, etc). The songs are really powerful and try to have some sort of positivity despite the issues they’ve gone through. I especially love the songs “Better Love”, “Mr. Moon”, and “The Valley”. I am in love with how they harmonize together which is what drew me in for pretty much the majority of all bands I listen to. Here’s a live recording of them playing the title track from the album. It is definitely an album I can listen to over and over again without tiring of it.
